Last week, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats’ Community Department visited six of the nine Ambassador Clubs for a special roadshow.
It was a fantastic week which saw over 200 children from the Wildcats’ partner clubs taking part in the one off Roadshow. A number of the first team players held a series of fun and educational coaching sessions with the junior teams whilst members of the Community department signed the youngsters up to receive a Free Junior Membership for the 2016 season.
The sole focus of the Ambassadors Scheme is to build a budding relationship with the community clubs to offer a range of support and fantastic benefits throughout the year. But also to help the children gain a further understanding of Rugby League and enjoy taking part in sport and keeping fit.
A further three amateur clubs which have signed up to the Ambassadors Scheme will be visited after the Easter holidays.
Lead Community Officer, James Stephenson is pleased with the success of the roashow saying, “It was a great week and we had such a warm welcome to each club who were extremely enthusiastic and pleased for the opportunity to have a coaching session run by a Super League player.
“All the kids involved had a fantastic time and we have had so much positive feedback from parents and coaches which will spur us on to hold future events like this. I would like to thank all the community clubs who have got on board with the Ambassadors Scheme.”
